EXCLUSIVE: T-Pain Drops Lawsuit Against UTA
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, T-Pain (real name Faheem Rashad Najm) is dismissed his entire lawsuit against UTA (United Talent Agency). The case is officially closed.
Here’s the backstory: The 30-year-old singer, rapper and music producer sued UTA (his booking agent) for failing to collect $27,000 that he said he was owed. He sued for breach of contract. According to court documents, the Fashion Meets Music Festival booked him, via UTA, to perform. He was to receive $12,500 up front, $12,500 the following month, and $25,000 a month before his performance. However, he says that he only received a total of $15,000 from UTA, who took their 10% commission.
T-Pain says that he was informed that the festival’s check bounced, a week after he performed at the festival. The artist says that UTA should have done their due diligence and informed his team of the bounced check. He also says that his agents should have been well aware that this particular festival had a history of not paying their performers.
